Your tour today takes you to the City
of Lincoln which rises dramatically on a cliff above
the River Witham. Steeped in history and at one time
the fourth most important city in England after London,
Winchester and York you can see remains from the past
all over the city.
Enjoy a walking tour of the city with your guide and
see the Jew’s House which is an early 12th century
stone house and one of the oldest of its kind in existance,
Lincoln Castle which also acted as the city prison from
1787-1878, Ruins of Bishop’s Palace and the statue
of Alfred Lord Tennyson to name but a few.
Of course one of the highlights of today will be a
visit to Lincoln Cathedral which is one of England’s
largest and dates from 1072 although only some of the
original structure can be seen today. The rest was destroyed
by fire in 1141. The majority of the Cathedral now dates
from the 13th and 14th centuries.
Afterward enjoy some time at leisure for independent
sightseeing and lunch before returning to your ship
later this afternoon.
